    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg After losing our last wee boy Titus last year I vowed not to get another one but had a look on Gumtree last week and found this wee beauty. Drove down to Northumbria on Saturday and brought him home,quite nervous to start with but this morning he is entertaining us by fetching a ball and bringing it back to us. Sad story behind him but he is quickly coming out of his shell.

    Nice to see a happy rescue - he's gorgeous.

    No matter what happens to a well-loved pet my belief is that the best thing you can do when they're gone is to rescue another. You're not replacing the one that's gone - you're doing the best you can for their kind.

    He is absolutely GORGEOUS... I can see you are going to fall in love with him and spoil him... I don't blame you.

    Be careful .... I see all that's left of Boris Johnson on the first photos is the bit at the bottom of the coffee table..... :0 ... Attack Tiger. xxx

    The only cats which like water and will go for a swim. It could almost turn me from a dog to a cat person. Almost! :)

    What a beautiful cat with extraordinary markings! Stripes and spots . Rescue cats need so much love and care which I know you have. Lucky cat . A friend rescued a cat which didn't know how to play , but now she is a happy , playful thing after much love and patience.

    We have a neighbors cat who just loves to come into the flat for a visit, however his owner decided to have him shaved!!! Terrible time of year, but he's still adorable:)

    I know but the vet did it to remove some serious tangles. Seems too cold to shave the poor fella just yet, but the vet knows best. We have him in when he's around. Yesterday he spent ages under the blanket to keep warm :)

    image.jpeg He is gorgeous, our Jazz is very much like him and now 15 & 1/2, well done you for taking a rescue, we tried to get take one on when we bought Jazz but the breeder wouldnt let us have her. We did take on a snow kitten that had been abandoned by her mother and was rather disfunctional, she made the most beautiful pet. We hope to get a snow queen rescue later on when we give up motorhoming.

    image.jpeg He is our third or should I say mine,my wife didn't want me to get him as she got really upset when we had to get Titus put down last year. He was only 8 and contracted severe pancreatitis.
